Travis Barrick, candidate for Nevada Attorney General will speak at the luncheon meeting of Boulder City Republican Women on Thursday, October 21. Barrick, a long time resident of Las Vegas, is an attorney, and considers his previous 20-year experience as a carpenter/contractor prior to studying law the advantage of a practical and business background that is essential to the role of Attorney General.
Early voting begins on October 16, and Boulder City voters will find 15 initiatives/questions on their ballot. To assist members to understand these issues, legislative chair Linda Bronstein will discuss the pros and cons of each one.
The meeting begins at 11:30 a.m. at Railroad Pass Banquet Room and reservations are required by October 14. To reserve, call the BCRW hotline at 393-1228, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Cost of the luncheon is $20 including tax and tip, and all interested persons are invited.
Hear ye! Hear ye!
It's October, and in Boulder City that means Country Store returns for the 63rd year. It is the event that features something for every age and for every use possible--from socks to sinks--and even great chili and hot dogs. So mark your calendar for Friday, October 22, 8 a.m.-6 p.m., and Saturday, October 23, 8 a.m.-noon, and come to Grace Community Church. The church yard, Fox Hall, the church basement, the American Legion Hall and even the alley off Wyoming Street will be stacked with treasures at reasonable and sometimes giveaway prices.
Co-chairs Jack Rants, Don Walker and Barbara Reed are still looking for a few good workers and, of course, choice merchandise. If you have items to donate or want to help call Barbara Reed at 293-3997.

Support Cardboard City~
On November 19, 2010, St. Christopher's Episcopal Church, is sponsoring a "first" for Boulder City: Boulder City's Cardboard City in Broadbent Park. All funds raised from this event of sleeping overnight in a cardboard box will go toward the programs of Emergency Aid of Boulder City and Family Promise of Las Vegas.
Attached is a pledge form and a flyer about the event. Collect pledges and sleep overnight in the park in a cardboard box that you can decorate if you wish. You can also form a team and have members donate funds and the entire team can sleep overnight. It is your choice. Check in time is 5 p.m. We will have a "soup line" where folks can "dine" on hot dogs and burgers. There will be music and Michael Miele will do some singing. Then it's lights out. There will be a light breakfast in the morning, clean up and everyone is then off to their day's activities.
Please feel free to call me at 339-9082 if you have any questions or send me an e-mail. Jean Norman of St. Christopher's is also available to answer your questions.
We hope you will join in this event to help two wonderful organizations that are helping folks in our community.
